This is one of the three I have most recently finished. And I’m fascinated by the color and texture contrast, even though I paired them together =)
I found this t-shirt at the thrift store and it was the coolest band shirt I’d ever seen! The best thing about it is that the cut out faces are cut from felt so they stand up just enough from the shirt and are fun to touch =)
And for the lining I was lucky enough to find this left over tapestry (don’t exactly know what it was before.) and it was like magic when I paired them together! Ok maybe not so dramatic but it looks REALLY good!
And I just found out that this tote has been featured in an etsy treasury! Click on the link and check it out! It’s my first feature!
But it’s not for sale anymore because Awesome Ava, a budding seamstress from Massachusetts now has it in her care =) It looks good on you Ava! Hope you love it!
(Now here’s the boring/more technical info:)
The Front, Back, and inside pockets are made from a Beatles t-shirt. The side panel is made from left over tapestry and the lining also. But what’s interesting about the lining is that in every yellow stripe is lifted by some sort of filler, so when you run your hand over it, it feels like small mountains =)
It’s complete with brown straps, and of course it’s fully interfaced for extra stability, even though the inside lining is pretty strong and could stand on it’s own without it.
The dimensions are about 16″x12″x3 1/2″ Great for everyday wear.
*****Each product is handmade from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.
